Check Your Voting Status Today!
Voter suppression is a strategy to influence the outcome of an election by discouraging or preventing specific groups of people from voting. It is distinguished from political campaigning in that campaigning attempts to change likely voting behavior by changing the opinions of potential voters through per-suasion and organization. Voter suppression, instead, attempts to reduce the number of voters who might vote against a candidate or proposition. -Wikipedia
